LaGrange receives $100,000 grant from Phillips 66

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - LaGrange High has received a $100,000 grant from Phillips 66 to update the school's science labs.

School officials showed off the state-of-the-art equipment, materials and supplies Tuesday morning.

"It's very exciting to be in a lab here today," said Calcasieu Parish Superintendent Karl Bruchhaus. "Phillips 66 has been a great partner and has provided an opportunity for LaGrange High School to have a few things that no other high school that I'm familiar with has the benefit of."

Teachers and students conducted hands-on experiments to demonstrate the new equipment.
